What a cute and endearing concept for a book. Yes, if you’ve been sheltered and are finally on your own, a list seems fitting for a teenager girl in her freshman year of college.

I was completely drawn in from the beginning with this. The only girl in the family with 4 older brothers and a VERY over protective father, Annie chose a college on the other side of the country to get some distance and experience life. Little did she know that her first 6 months in college were going to be jam packed with excitement thanks to her roomie, Cami.

Like most YA or NA reads, Annie meets a boy, Chris, on her first day of school and of course there is some kind of chemistry. The catch, turns out he’s the best friend of her roommates brother, Ryan, whom she seems to have MORE chemistry with but since Chris saw her first…well.

When the roomie finds out that Annie has lived a sheltered life, she decides that “a list” needs to be made. And this list needs to be completed before Annie turns 20, a full years time. Cami is a little wild though, so she knocks most of the list off in 4 months flat.

I REALLY thought that this was well written. The Author kept the timeline moving at a respectable and entertaining rate where I wasn’t bored nor lost. It even felt “real” with some of the issues that presented themselves. I was so in to this read that I was able to finish it within a day and a half (would have been quicker if my kid wasn’t sick). Can’t wait to get my hands on Cami’s story!!!

If you like NA, college love and a whole lot of teenage growing up to do, you’ll love this one. Highly recommended.
